The daylilies are starting to bloom. Well, actually the Stella d'Oros have been blooming for about three weeks now, but everyone and his neighbor (or so it seems in my neighborhood) has that variety growing in their yard.
This is one of the few daylilies that I planted last year that I actually have a name for. It is "Happy Returns" and the only reason I know is that I bought it at a big box store along with the Stellas and it had a label on it. The other daylilies which have buds but no blooms yet, will have to remain unnamed as they were a huge lot of lost label daylily fans - close to 70 of them.
It will be interesting to see how the small garden turns out this summer.
